"It was obviously a pretty good ballclub we played. I thought for the first half we did a pretty good job of controlling things for the most part and playing a pretty good ballgame."

"We wanted to come out that first five minutes and really get something going and instead we turned it over against their trap."

"They are a veteran ballclub and they came out in the second half like veteran teams do. They wanted to put it to us early."

"I thought our guys still played hard and just tried to do the best they could."

"I thought they played hard."

"It's very tough. It really is. From their point and my point it's frustrating. It's very frustrating for something like that to happen. I'm sure it's frustrating for Engin as well. You think you've got your floor leader back and you're ready to go into the ACC play and he reinjures it."

"The whole mindset of the guys... I think it bothered them. Gavin in particular was excited about Engin obviously coming back and now he's been thrust into a position... it's not his position. He's doing the best job he can. It certainly took a lot out of us."

"We're short on numbers right now and there are situations where you can see it... we're not pushing through it. We are tired. The only thing you can try to do is fight through it."
